On June 11, 2014 the American Chemistry Council (ACC) filed a lawsuit to remove diisononyl phthalate (DiNP, CAS 28553-12-0) from the U.S. Californian list of hazardous substances, Proposition 65, arguing that the listing is unwarranted and defies the state of science. On December 16, 2013 California placed DiNP on the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, known as Proposition 65 as it is “known to cause cancer” (previously reported by the FPF). The case was filed with the Sacramento County Superior Court. In Europe, DiNP is authorized as an additive in plastics food contact materials and in the U.S. it is used as a plasticizer under the Code of Federal Regulations (CfR) 178.374.
